Glenn David Jones, 61 years old, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, August 10, 2016, in Hawley, Texas after a lengthy battle with cancer. Glenn was born to Glenn and Mildred Jones in Abilene, Texas. He married Marilyn Kay Hillman in July 1980. They were blessed with three beautiful daughters Hailey, Heather, and Hannah. Glenn most recently was a CPA with JLB Properties in Dallas, Texas where he built many lasting and treasured friendships. Glenn was an avid sportsman, who loved baseball and anything outdoors. Glenn was a member of Hawley Church of Christ, where he was honored to serve as an elder. He was highly regarded by his family and peers for his wisdom and insight. He cared deeply for others and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Glenn always kept his family rolling in laughter with his dry, sarcastic wit, which will be greatly missed. Knowing his first grandchild, Kendall Cate, for 11 months was a gift he was exceedingly grateful for; his only other wish was to see the Texas Rangers win the World Series.
Glenn was preceded in death by his infant brother Rodney; his father Glenn V Jones; his niece Cheryl Denice Halbert; and his grandparents.
Glenn is survived by his loving wife of 36 years Marilyn; favorite daughter Hailey (Wes), granddaughter Kendall Cate; favorite daughter Heather, favorite daughter Hannah; mother Mildred Jones; sisters Cheryl Jones and Jamie Truitt; and a host of nieces and nephews. Services will be held at Elliott Hamil Funeral Home, 5701 Highway 277 South, Abilene, Texas 79606 at 2pm on Saturday, August 13, 2016.
Memorials may be made to Main St. Church of Christ, 4300 Main St., Dallas, TX 75226 or Christ's Haven for Children, 4200 Keller Haslet Rd., Keller, TX 76244.
